The primitive "Bird Hollow Cabin" is a one room antique oak log cabin located on 25 acres in a beautiful mountain hollow of rhododendrons in western Highland County. Less than 1 hour from Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort, the 10' x 16' Cabin sits next to a pure mountain stream called "Bird Run" which is fed by springs from the George Washington National Forest that joins the property. Enjoy the view and sound of the stream while rocking on the front porch, and build a fire in the fire ring.
Bedding is Not provided for the Full Size Bed, except for pillows. The Cabin has a 2 burner Coleman Stove and a Propane Heater (propane and dishes are provided), and a Camper Style Chemically Treated Porta Potti. There is no electricity so bring flashlights or a headlamp which can be extremely handy making it a hands-free light. Candles in holders are provided, or you may bring a small generator, cords and lights if you wish. There is no plumbing, but water from the spring fed mountain stream is safe for cooking, drinking and can be boiled on the Coleman Stove.
4-wheel drive is recommended in snowy conditions on the 1/4 mile driveway which has one shallow stream crossing. You can access 100's of acres of George Washington National Forest by foot from the Cabin's property.
Interaction with guests
I will be able to offer help during your stay, but sometimes I might not be able to meet you upon arrival for your first evening.
Other things to note
During Big Game Hunting Season from early November through early January, you should wear bright colors (such as a solid blaze orange hat) if you hike on the National Forest.
